Is my wheel repairable?
 
I have a set of Breytons 18x8.5, byt one of the wheels is not straight.
I am not sure how to describe it, but when I rotate it, you can see that the wheel's outer edge goes from side to side (like wobbles), very little :cry: , but enough to give pretty damn big vibration on the steering wheel at speeds over 75mph. I know that bends are repaired, but was wondering if these wobbles could be fixed too.

I have a video (~5Mb), but can't find where to host it, cos free service sites do not allow file size more that 1Mb to be transferred :banghead: :banghead:

Please smb. help me out :bawling:

Sure sounds like a bent wheel to me. Not much you can do now except repair or replace it.

My friends VOLK TE37 were bent so bad that part of the lip was torn away a little (gap of 1/8"). It was fixed like new for $110 each wheel, so your bent is nothing.

The shop is in the Chicago suburbs though. It's Wheel of America.

It "should" be able to get fixed by any good wheel shop. :thumbup:

It's a bad idea to point your car at a wall while on the OEM jack and power the wheels.

It had a jack stands under front and rear and was sitting on them.
I just didn't take jack off :hi: .
So, It IS repairable?
I might send it to Chicago them to The Wheels Of America.
The tire shop that looked at the wheel first told me that an average repair runs $250-300, but after looking at the rim said it's not repairable.

I just do not want to send it away to a shop and get back a bill and the wheel with "Not Repairable" diagnosis.
